Donna and I went to the craft show yesterday (sometimes I think we're joined at the hip) and had a great day.
The top floor has the 'craft labs' - a lot of the indie designers and crafters have stalls there; really cool hand printed fabrics, softies and sewing projects - it's very, very inspiring. The Audrey and Maude dachshund with her puppies almost made me die, and I think I also finally saw the appeal of wonky handmade bunting.
It's a cornucopia of cute - with birds, birdhouses, matryoshka doll fabric, owls, wonky monsters, hippos, pinnies, dresses, cushions, hand screened linens, and bunting. My daughter would have had an ecstatic fit!
Next year I'm going to take more money.
BTW - I saw the most recent YARN magazine, hot off the press yesterday. My pattern for the cloud mantilla is in there - made with one skein of luxury Louet Mooi (the softest fibre I've ever tasted), it's a multifunctional piece; a cowl, a hood, a scarf, a skirt. I'm pretty pleased with it, and thanks to Donna for actually knitting it for me.
So, that's it from me, have a great weekend everybody.
